An invite has been published on the official Samsung news portal for an upcoming Galaxy Event.

What does Samsung have in store? On Thursday 11 October, Samsung will reveal a new Galaxy device (singular) which offers "4x fun", headlines the invite graphic.

We've already seen Samsung Galaxy S9 and more recently Galaxy Note 9 redefine the flagship nature of smartphones, nonetheless the competition remains stringent.

The Galaxy S10 could become the first smartphone from Samsung to use a triple rear camera setup.

The "4x" matches the number of cameras. Now with Samsung's confirmation for an October event perfectly fits the bill.

Samsung has announced a surprising launch event for a Galaxy device it says will bring "more ways to express yourself than ever before". Meanwhile, the front cameras are expected to come with a 12-megapixel main lens with variable aperture (f/1.5 to f/2.4), and another super-wide-angle lens at 16-megapixel with f/1.9 aperture. So Samsung's next phone - presumably called the Galaxy S10 - may well have four camera lenses on the back of it. Then we are asked to "capture the fun with Samsung" as the company celebrates the launch of the new device.
